Quite possibly neither... reading back multi-session CDs is one of those
experiences which produce nostalgia in people who used to try to get three
add-in card drivers to work in CONFIG.SYS under DOS... it doesn't always
work. It can be quite hardware-dependent. Can you read the same CD
correctly on the same drive with "another" operating system ? Some drives
just can't read multi-session CDs at all.
